Be safe out there!!

COVID-19 is spreading fast in Colorado. And not just in the metro areas. There has been such an increase in cases in the past two weeks that the risk of catching this virus in every county of Colorado is very real and very concerning. We all must work together to save lives. Wear a mask, keep your distance, wash your hands, and only interact with members of your household.
